10. Cook your date a dinner
Show off your cooking skills and cook your date a homemade dinner. Do this only if you are comfortable inviting your date to your home. There is another option to do this as well, check if your city offers a cooking classes for two, where in the end you can have the food that you prepaired as a dinner. This option might be a bit pricier than preparing the meal yourself. The more affordable option, specially if you are yet not that experienced with cooking is that you can purchase take-out and serve it in a romantic way.
